Similar to Forsaken Child

Forsaken Child is a novel about a human who has believed he is a beast for a long time while trying hard to regain his humanity. So, there are lots of human-versus-beast conflicts in this web novel. Dreame has Blood Of The Beast, which has similar story themes to the Forsaken Child manhwa.

Furthermore, Dreame’s Blood Of The Beast doesn’t only talk about beasts in human forms. This Dreame novel also talks about romantic sparks between the two MCs in the novel. It’s all about an Alpha she-wolf with the ambition to be a Goddess and a beast in human form who is trapped in the supernatural world.

Summary of Blood Of The Beast:

Blood Of The Beast tells a story about Scylla Narolin, an Alpha she-wolf who has the ambition to be a Goddess. After all, she sometimes lives in the supernatural world, where she can manipulate everything and anything to achieve her goals. Unfortunately, everybody around Scylla, including her parents, thinks that Scylla is an anti-social monster.

Scylla’s ambition of becoming a Goddess has to meet its end the moment she encounters a beast in human form. This beast also appears to be an Alpha monster, who will stop at nothing to get her body. So, the physical chemistries between these two beasts in Dreame’s Blood Of The Beast are as strong as their romantic sparks.

Blood Of The Beast has lots of potential in becoming better than Forsaken Child. So, I would recommend this book as a decent alternative.
